This is another hilarious book from the award-winning author, Lauren Child.  Lauren Child is a genius.  It's true - in our house her books are much loved by all of us, adults and children alike.  She has a deft turn of phrase, an eye for the absurd and a unique style of illustration.  Her stories are fanciful, absurd and funny.  Her characters are likeable and spot on.

Hubert Horatio Bartle Bobton Trent is the story of a rich, little boy who is a genius.  His parents are frightfully, frightfully rich socialites.  They love buying lavish things, entertaining and playing games.  What will happen when the money runs out?  Can Hubert save the day?  Read this book and find out.
